Render Point Clouds in the Browser

Render point clouds with billions of points directly in the Zea Engine.

Zea Potree is a plugin for Zea Engine that integrates the powerful Potree. Zea Potree enables loading and rendering of massive LiDAR and point cloud data directly in the browser. The integration of Potree into Zea Engine provides a few important improvements, including better performance and the ability to use with other tools in the Zea ecosystem. When combined with the other powerful features of Zea Engine, like CAD and BIM data loading, Zea Potree can be used for advanced use cases such as metrology and building inspections.

More Options

Combine Zea Potree with other plugins for advanced use cases, for example, render CAD models inside a point cloud environment.

Good to Know

The Potree library is a free and open-source project published by Markus Schütz. We've created and maintain a loader to render points clouds that Potree processes in the Zea Engine. Zea supports the Zea Engine and this plugin.
